Lime products play an important role in the full lifecycle of a mine, from the initial construction of a mine right through to remediation.

Our Calbux quicklime (calcium oxide) and Limbux hydrated lime (calcium hydroxide) products are used throughout mining operations for the refining and conditioning of metal ores and non-ferrous metals such as gold, silver, copper, zinc and aluminium.
